No. 9216. Signed by Lewis and Morris. Ink cancelled on both sides. Fairly well printed on a soft, pulpy paper. Lightly toned, corners a bit rounded, one central pinhole. Aggressively canceled on both sides with a single large X, a smaller X on the wreath on face, and a smaller X below D of DOLLARS. The plates for this counterfeit were engraved by Henry Dawkins on Long Island before his arrest by Patriots in 1776. After going to Philadelphia to obtain the paper for his notes, the merchant reported Dawkin’s paper purchase to authorities. Another member of Dawkins’ gang, Issac Ketcham, turned into an informant for Patriot leaders in prison in New York City and helped them uncover a plot to kidnap George Washington. One of the conspirators was hung before a crowd of 20,000 soldiers on June 28, 1776. From Early American History Auctions’ sale of September 2005, Lot 3453.
